Q&A - Machines Understanding of Humans

From The Conference August 20, 2014

It’s an exciting proposition, to have robots and computers do stuff that are heavy, boring or time consuming. But, to really get machines and robots to work for us in a helpful and meaningful way we need to first let them learn what it’s like to be human. The question we need to ask ourselves is how we make it easier for the machines to take over.

In this session two thought leaders in the field will talk about the need to digitize our world for a computer based beings to understand it. The session closes the loop we started day 1 with the session on what drives humans.

Amir Rubin, co-founder, Paracosm
Amir will talk about how a constantly updated 3D map in the cloud allows for a generation of apps that can understand and interact with the environment.

Nell Watson, CEO, Poikos
Nell will investigate humanity’s present and future, with regards to how we program machines as tools through which to program ourselves.
